#SundayStills ~ Our Feathered Friends #NaturePhotography #Birds

Welcome to the Sunday Stills feature hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt. This week is all about our feathered friends.


Time for a preen after being on the lake…

Sparrow and dunnock

Digitised images of a swan and great spotted woodpecker

Juvenile blackbird (I think) 

Pheasant and dove

I’m not sure what this bird is, some sort of finch maybe. I saw it in a butterfly conservation house which was quite tropical so it may not be a British species.

(edited to add…thanks to Eva aka Novel Deelights who discovered this is a Java sparrow also known as a Java finch)

and a sleepy mallard.

  2. Truly wonderful images of your feathered friends, Cathy! What a sharp-eyed fellow blogger you have that identified the Java finch. I know so very little about birds. I belong to a Facebook birding group where the birds are ID’d which helps me learn. I also like the images you enhanced with the filters. I’m glad you saw my theme change (a couple of folks didn’t)! Have a great week (or two)!

  4. Wonderful images, Cathy! I love watching birds. Before we downsized, we lived on a large lake. The ducks would come into our yard and come right up to us. They were so much fun to watch.
    Where we live now we have a family of bald eagles nesting in the trees nearby. Amazing creatures. Hope all is well with you and yours. Take care. Love and hugs.
